Hazardous Materials endorsements are not transferred with your license. You will be required to take the written test on Hazardous Materials to receive the endorsement in Oklahoma. See Endorsements.

Visit a Service Oklahoma Licensing Office

Visit a License Office Location where you will take a vision test. You can schedule an appointment online, or walk into a Driver License Location. Many Driver License Locations provide walk-in services. However, most have limited walk-in availability. Therefore, we strongly recommend making an appointment online.

A temporary license will be printed for you at the test site. The official CDL with the added endorsement will be mailed to you within 10-21 days of successfully passing your written test.
